HERO of the week: Sharika Blockett


"Being able to share this journey with my husband has been amazing! It has strengthened our bond in our marriage and we are both on this road to recovery together. Had he not encouraged me to do it, neither one of us would be here. Growth in our new normal has not been easy but this program has afforded us the best start possible being a dual-military family. We also share this with our children who ride their bikes to and from school and around the neighborhood. It is having a positive impact on our family as whole and that makes each day special to share with the entire family." - Sharika
